Has anyone else noticed the steep rise in gentrification taking place in suburban areas for the last decade or so? What do you think is an effective and plausible solution to this epidemic of rising affluence and real estate prices?
One of my favorite backdrops / photo spots is the Sabine Street Bridge...I've shot a few videos there and taken some pics there as well because I like the background image. Even used this shot as a header image on my site. Houston has to have one of the best skylines in the US (and probably the most overlooked). And I've always been a fan of the symbolism imposed by bridges so any time I can combine our skyline with a great bridge, I love it. I like how it has some great color contrasts with the green trees and the urban-esque (is that a word) skyline. It's just a great spot for photos and videos (except for the passing car noise). What other bridges are picturesque in Houston? I need more photo locations.
I know there's been some discussion in the past of the site that the Scamrock was planned for, and that Hines had been involved with the site as of late. After stumbling across this page & the rendering included, I was wondering if anyone had additional info on it.
I am researching Houston author Royal Dixon, who lived at 1310 Truxillo from 1934 to 1962, when he died. His partner, artist Chester Snowden continued to live there until his death in 1984. I'm hoping to find a photo of their home, nicknamed Camellia Place. Dixon has a popular naturalist, and four books made a popular lecturer in the 1910's - 1940's. Photos are of his popular four "Human Side Of" series, a lecturer ad, Chester and ?? somewhere on the grounds, and a sketch by Chester of "The Patio".
